LUTZ -- Real Ideas, the annual workshop event founded 10 years ago by pastors at two fast-growing Florida Conference churches, will offer a Web-based workshop, "Why Connections Matter," at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 23.

Andrew Davis, Real Ideas director at Van Dyke Church, invites all church leaders and staff to tap into the free workshop, titled "Why Connections Matter." Van Dyke lead pastor Matthew Hartsfield will be featured. Click here to register. Once registered, participants will receive an email with instructions for tapping into the webinar.

Real Ideas, co-founded by Van Dyke and Grace Church in southwest Florida, exists to inspire and equip church leaders through practical nuts-and-bolts content, Davis said.. Real Ideas is adding a continuing education section to its annual conference event. The continuing education component consists of Web-based workshops taking place throughout the year leading up to the Real Ideas conference in March. 

During the workshop, Hartsfield will cover why it is so important to connect with new attendees, as well as what role a senior pastor plays. The content presented will be based on the questions participants ask in the chat room during the workshop, so please come ready to ask questions that matter to you and your ministry
